Visitors can expect a wide range of products and services for the field of mechanical engineering and the manufacturing industry. FMB-Süd is, however, not restricted to individual sub-sectors of the supply industry. On the contrary, it covers virtually all of the components and services required by mechanical engineering companies.
Machine parts, components and systems account for the strongest product group comprising 87 exhibitors: Many companies here will be showcasing their expertise in metalworking and plastics processing, e.g. in the processing of sheet metal, plastics injection moulding and in the area of iron and light metal casting. This group is followed by assembly, handling and automation technology (55 exhibitors) as well as electrical and mechanical drive engineering (51 exhibitors). However, production-related services, for instance in the field of product development/engineering (35 exhibitors) and preventive maintenance, are also strongly represented, as well as companies operating in the area of control engineering and electrical engineering/ industrial electronics.
From the point of view of the organiser, holding the show in February offers the visitors a great opportunity to start off the year with new ideas and contacts – in a manner which is convenient and as hassle free as possible. For this reason, admis-sion to the event and the exhibition catalogue are both free of charge.
An additional appealing aspect of FMB-Süd concerns the fact that both the two partners (the Mechatronics + Automation Cluster and the Augsburg Centre of Excel-lence – SMEs 4.0) and the exhibiting universities and institutes will be taking an intensive look at the topical issues of digitalisation and Industry 4.0. Christian Enßle, Portfolio Manager of the Trade Show Organiser Clarion Events Deutschland GmbH: “Digitalisation in industry is a theme which concerns all mechanical engineering companies and manufacturers. The trade show provides the opportunity to strike up discussions with experts in this field and to exchange views and experiences – not only at the booths themselves but also as part of the accompanying programme. We have arranged for various lectures to be held on relevant issues, including man-robot cooperation and secure communication solutions for Industry 4.0.”
